    Geno Smith! lol I'm kidding.

    Alright now that our season is over, what is our biggest need?

    I think with the first pick we should take bpa at either DT or SS. I believe that DT is our biggest need by far. A really good SS would be nice too!

    One of the first two rounds should be on a guard. If we are going to be one of the few teams that is going to still try to run the ball we have to upgrade the interior of the line.

    I totally agree that DT is our biggest need. Been saying it since AH left. No doubt OL is a big need also but DT is more important to improve our defense. I think that we can upgrade the OL in the 2nd round and beyond and even free agency.

    We have got to take the best DT on the board. Preferably a big, fat, run-stuffing SOB.

    I would put my money on a DT as well.

    we need a OL, drafting projects in the 3-5 rounds vs getting one in the 1st round gets old

    You have one round to get a good OL.. 2nd round... You MIT be able to scoop up a 3rd rounder but less likely... 1st round at 10??? That's not even heard of unless its a OT

    So what DT are we hoping we get at 10? I keep seeing Star Lotuleleli (Utah) as the #1 overall, but we would probably have to move up to guarantee getting him. But the Raiders are the only team ahead of us that seem to need a DT.

    DT is our 3rd biggest need behind O-Line and SS

    we can get by and actually do pretty well with Casey and Marks/Martin

    sure adding a disruptive force on defense would be nice, but the easiest solution to fixing our team is by fixing the O-Line.

    I really don't know what position we'll draft first, free agency hasn't happened so it could be G, C, DT, DE, MLB, SS, TE who knows.

    Hard to say.. depends on what we do in free agency.

    OG/c & SS must be addressed early.
    MLB, CB, DT, DE could also be addressed early (depending on who falls where).

    None of our DTs push the pocket. And are all questionable against the run. Star gets a big push in the line, he would change how teams play us. You add him with Casey and Martin switching out and you have a solid run stopping front 7. Plus he leaves room to switch to the 34 looks.

    Landing him at 10 however is not happening. The other DTs don't impress me. Hankins is big and good at holding his point but he doesn't push the pocket or pressure anything. Wouldn't really help us much. Also his ability to get off blocks is iffy. He gets glued in to much and can't help getting the runner down.

    The other cat from mizzou... Meh. Doesn't impress me at all.

    So to me, DT is out.

    That leaves Te'o... If he falls to us, that also helps out run stopping and pass coverage, very good instinct player, much like mccarthy but bigger. Plus leadership abilities. Helps turn around the locker room vibe. That's a huge plus. So immediately he is the 1b prospect for us. McCarthy is good but he isn't Te'o and he is broken 80 percent of the time.

    If Te'o is gone.

    OT Lewan from Michigan. Played a solid game against Clowney. Moving Roos to RT and Stewart to OG. This is the only way I see us drafting OL in the first UNLESS

    We trade our tenth pick. For somewhere in the late teens and pick up a mid round 2nd

    If we trade back, swing for Warmack. Awesome OG from Alabama. Only prospect OG worth a first round pick. Then with our extra second we grab a C to add in on the O line. Two solid additions.

    Use our other second on Matt Elam. Kid plays with fire. Hits heavy and scares WRs. Could quickly start for us opposite of griffin.
